Book Review: The Ascension of Melanie Winters by Holly Stockport*

She was a monster. But the worst kind of monster. One disguised as a living human.

Melanie Winters is struggling with university life just as much as everyone else. Exams, lectures, the power to move things with her mind, the usual worries.

After a freak accident that she caused, Melanie is forced to return to her home in the Welsh countryside with her mother to start again.

But  when strange evens begin to occur upon her arrival, Melanie begins to realise that she, and the powers she fought so hard to keep hidden all these years, might be part of something a lot more sinister.

The official debut novel from Holly Stockport.

My Experience With Fluoxetine

Last week, I wrote a post about my experience with Sertraline, the first antidepressant I tried that worked. I was on Sertraline for a year or two, but when I resumed taking it after a hiatus from the drug, I found it didn't work anymore. Turns out you can become resistant to certain drugs. Who knew? Not me! So I was put on a new SSRI; Fluoxetine.

Book Review: The Good Mother by Karen Osman

How far would you go to protect your children? 

Catherine is a good mother and a good wife. The family home is immaculate, her husband’s supper is cooked on time, but when she starts writing to Michael, a prisoner convicted of murder, she finds herself obsessing about his crime and whether he can ever truly be forgiven…

Kate has no time for herself. Caught in the maelstrom of bringing up two young children with no money, and an out of work husband, she longs to escape the drudgery of being a wife and a mother. And she soon starts taking dangerous risks to feel alive…

Alison has flown the nest. But university life is not what she had hoped for, and she finds herself alone and unhappy. Until the day her professor takes a sudden interest in her. Then everything changes…

Three women – all with secrets. And as the days tick down to Michael’s release, those secrets can no longer be ignored.

Haul Post!

So far this year, I've definitely been buying less. So, this haul post will be a little shorter than previous ones. But I've still picked up a few bits over the last month, or two, that I wanted to share with you! Here's what I've been buying lately...

In January, I did something super-scary. Something I'd been dreading for months. I attended my first group therapy session. As a reward for getting through it, I treated myself to a cute AF unicorn plushie, and a Me To You cake!

30 Before 30 - Goals Revisited!

Last year saw me give myself a massive kick up the backside when I set myself a whopping thirty goals to achieve before I turn thirty. And, I'm not going to lie; I may have been dreaming when I set myself some of these goals. I turn twenty-eight this year, so I've only got another two years left to tick all these goals off. And I don't see us getting to New York at Christmas in the next two years, to be honest! Anyway, today I'm going to revisit my 30 before 30 goals, and see how many (if any) I've managed to tick off in the last year!
